Do you know the trick of making it easy to figure out what the answer is, when you need to count 9 times *whatever up till 10*? I don’t think my almost 4 year old daughter understands multiplication but she can multiply 9 x 1, 9 x 2…9 x 10 like this:
Use both your hands, and count from the left the number you want to multiply with. Let’s say 4 x 9; lift your left index finger up and then count how many you have many fingers you have left on the left side of the left finger (3) and then count the fingers on the right side of the finger left (6) and arrange the numbers after each other: 36.
Did you get it? Or was this common knowledge to all? I thought it was pretty cool to see my girl train counting like this!
